Luma's 200-hr YTT offers a multi-disciplinary inquiry into the elements of yoga in the modern world. Modern yoga emphasizes strength, joint mobility, and awareness – fundamentals that can be traced back to its ancient roots. Now practiced by millions across the globe, yoga has become ever more relevant in today's fast-paced world. In this training, we will thoroughly explore yoga’s current expression in modern western culture, examine why yoga remains relevant and spiritually poignant to so many, and consider where the practice is going as the century unfolds.
Together, we will examine the history, philosophy, and technique of yoga, as well as hone our teaching skills in a welcoming, experimental, and forgiving environment. It is our hope that trainees will walk away with the capacity to ignite their future students' innate desire to rejoice, connect, and thrive in an ever-changing world.
